The Poteau Balloon Fest is an annual community celebration featuring hot air balloons, tethered balloon rides and glows, a mud pit race, arts and crafts booths, games, carnival rides and much more. Each evening, balloons line up for an exciting balloon glow as the hot air balloons perform via burns, flickers and the wave. A wide variety of events will be held in conjunction with the event.

Balloons will be in a special area during non-flight times. Pilots will be explaining the art of ballooning and let the public get a feel of being in a basket and how the burners heat up the balloon causing the balloon to rise. Balloon pilots will also be handing out cards with information about their balloon.

Several other attractions will be present at the festival including an extreme BMX stunt team, monster truck rides, helicopter rides and more. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the fun.

All events are weather permitting. If balloons are not able to fly, pilots will be available to answer questions about hot air balloons. Pilots will be monitoring the weather and announcing flight times throughout the day.
